Large image is displaying in validation mode but when tweeted does not display

When I validated the URL above the twitter preview pulled the image fine but when the link was actually tweeted out the card did not display the image.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Tim

Hi Tim, could you please try updating your http://www.canisius.edu/robots.txt file to make sure Twitterbot can access your images? This might be the issue. Thanks!

Hi Romain,

Do I have to allow twitter bot? What’s the code for this?

Thanks,

Tim

You can have for instance the following:

User-agent: Twitterbot Allow: *

Please keep us posted but I’m confident this will solve your issues.

Hi again,

The code was added to robots.txt but the image is still not displaying…

Any other recommendations?

Thanks,

Tim

Can you please paste the link to your tweet?

Thanks

The images are now displaying.

Even the old tweets now display the images.

Must have took time for Twitterbot to get access.

Thanks,

Tim
